Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Yes, I still require assistance.
If you require any further information about this issue, please let me know.
I can confirm it IS the red immobilisor light which is flashing.
It is indeed intermittent, and has been happening over the last 4 to 6 weeks. Initially it was barely noticible, but now it is happening every two to three minutes (and sometimes actually within a few seconds of each other).
I don't believe I have seen it flash rapidly.... it just comes on, stays solid for a second and then dissapears again (and as stated before, its when the light comes on, the radio cuts out, and the heating panel dims off).
Interestingly i DID have a starting issue with it both at the weekend and again this morning.... I pressed the starter button and literally nothing happened. I then left it a few seconds, tried again and then it worked.
I have seen no messages come up... aside from a 'service oil' message that has appeared way after all this started.
Hope this all helps,
Thanks for your latest mail.
So, just to be clear, do I need to attend a Ford garage and ask for a 'diagnostic fault code check' to be completed on PCM*, Cluster and keyless module ?
Additionally, should the fault reside in the instrument cluster, as per most common cause... What sort of cost would we be looking at to rectify ?
